History channel was pretty much the WW2 channel until they created the military channel and then History channel lost all its viewers and started down the awful reality tv route.

Such a shame because  the only show I truly enjoy on there is American pickers but they have gotten too far away from the original premise of the show.

history of the gun was a good show.  one of the experts who was regularly on the show ran the ordnance museum at Aberdeen Proving Grounds when I was stationed there.

Are there any other folks here who are also obsessed with the PBS Newshour ?  2IPAs & I tape each show to see when we aren't home at dinnertime.

Last night's show (Friday the 13th) was particularly good.  Besides the regular great political discussion with Mark Shields & David Brooks, there was a piece about misinformation that is spread on the Internet through some social organizations.  One very interesting aspects was interviews with those who spread misinformation and the system or plan they use to fo this.  Here is a link:

Then to change gears, there was a piece on this Moslem musical group invited by Winston-Salem NC town council to perform in the US:

Cmon. You’ve had thirty years or more to get over that.

I did! Then he showed up and confirmed none of the current cast members can hold a candle to him!

I don’t watch it anymore.  They go up and down over the years. Seems down now.

Witcher is really good if you read the books/played the game. New people are going to feel lost.

Cavill nails Geralt though.

Last night he admitted that he has 10 children.  Not cool.

I can’t really get upset if he supports all of them. Plus I have zero idea of the circumstances of how they were born.

I would've switched the channel after the social media disinformation story, but that's just me.  Seriously, I like David Brooks for his truly independent thinking.  We need more of that in this society we live in.

Why? The next story looked interesting.

It's mostly about religious persecution.  A legitimate topic.  Not sure how good the music is, because they didn't play more than 5-second bites.

Exactly, no clue why that is “not cool”? :shrug:

Finishes Ep6 of the Mandalorian last night, will be watching 7 and 8 tomorrow.

Moss from The IT Crowd as a droid has been a highlight so far.

Shhh.  No details please.  I'm up to episode 6.  Have to wait until we return to daughter's house in a  few days to watch the rest.  I have enjoyed so far.

Curiosity Stream and YouTube for me, PBS and Acorn for Mrs. GburgNatsFan, and we'd be done. Except MASN... goddamn Angelos.
